Food Porn – January 2013

Josh PalmerNutrition1 Comment

So here’s my ‘Food Porn’ update for January 2013! I completely succumbed to buying a few new gadgets over the past thirty days. Stovetop smoke, japanese mandolin, new oven proof frying pans – the list goes on! Almost everything I’ve been eating is fairly well adherent to the leangains system I’ve been following.

Josh PalmerNutrition, TrainingLeave a Comment

I’m a member of the Nerd Fitness forums, a site dedicated to nerds/geeks from all walks of life to come together and treat their lives like a computer game, leveling up 6 weeks at a time.
